Pumpkin Soup for the Autumn Soul…

Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin cake. Pumpkin bread.
Pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin cookies. Pumpkin seeds…

I know I sound like Benjamin Buford ‘Bubba’ Blue talking about shrimp in the movie ‘Forrest Gump’. But there are just so many delicious dishes to make with pumpkins! We started with Pumpkin Sheet Cake last week. This week we move on to a savory dish… Pumpkin Apple Soup.

Not in a mood to make it yourself? We have out-of-this-world Pumpkin Soup for sale by the quart in our Dinners on Demand freezers in The Culinary Center of Kansas City’s Kitchen Shop. Stop by today to pick one up!
